Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 reviews

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 reviews Imaging Resource has written a review for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 and say: “The Panasonic DMC-LZ5 is a nice little camera at a very affordable price, particularly considering that it sports a 6x, optically stabilized zoom lens. Panasonic is very justifiably proud that they’ve managed to bring optical image stabilization to their entire product line, from top to bottom. The Panasonic LZ5 did quite well overall in our testing, delivering good bright colour, good resolution, and only moderate lens distortion. The huge 2.5-inch LCD screen is great for sharing your photos with friends, and makes the menus easier to see, but the difficulty of seeing the screen clearly under bright lighting often left us wishing for an optical viewfinder as well. Shutter response was also on the slow side of what passes for average these days, and high-ISO shots were only usable up to a print size of 5×7 inches.”

PC Mag has also reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 and write: “Overall, the Lumix DMC-LZ5 produced a decent exposure, although the images were just slightly underexposed and lacked some sharpness. The colours in both the flash and the daylight images were nicely saturated and accurate. There was a touch of fringing in both images. I could detect no pincushion distortion and just a small amount of barrel distortion.”

Trusted Reviews has posted a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 review and write: “Although the LZ5 is priced to compete with budget cameras from other manufacturers, it succeeds only in demonstrating that Panasonic should stick to what it’s good at; making superb high-end super-zoom cameras. The LZ5 is too bulky for convenient pocket use, has questionable build quality, mixed performance and shoddy image quality despite its high quality lens. All in all a rather disappointing camera, and a blot on Panasonic’s otherwise impressive record.”
